user_name is logged in user name and
product_name could be e.g. .AndroidStudio1.5


In windows version

you can find the log in the bottom of the IDE, click the “Gradle Console”, and then choose the “Android Monitor”. You will see a Droplistbox control which shows “Verbose” as a default value.

If you use log.v() . Verbose option is okay. if you use log.d(), just change it to Debug.
